Top 10: Best viral videos from the 2008 election


The Republicrats videos may have gotten lost in the thousands of viral videos about the campaign, but they deserve attention and a place on our list. In this video, which is one in a series, the Republicrat candidate inserts himself into the debate with McCain and Obama, and takes some pretty funny shots at both of them, as well as at commentator Bob Schieffer and the format of the debate itself.

8. Ronna & Beverly nudge the vote!

Sarah Silverman's was a pretty witty look at moving the elderly Jewish vote, but I found Ronna & Beverly to be just as funny and maybe a little more incisive. Ronna Glickman and Beverly Goldstein (Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo), two middle-aged Jewish housewife types, give voice to a catalog of stereotypical Jewish political beliefs--many of which may still be alive and well in contested states like Florida. But Ronna & Beverly aren't trying to do any sort of heavy-handed social commentary here; it's mainly just funny. In another video Ronna refers to the Democratic candidate as Baruch Obama. And don't forget to notice Beverly's artfully applied lipstick. Good stuff.

9. Wassap!!! 2008

In Wassap 2008, Anheuser Busch updates its popular TV commercial from 2000. The original is kinda funny in its own right, and the of the spot is really funny. The 2008 version uses the same actors as , and it asks and answers the stock campaign trail question: Are you better off than you were eight years ago? That would be no, but the video has a somewhat happy, or at least hopeful, ending.
